Last night I was driving Sophie to her friend's house and she said, "Would you like to see what I'm giving Taylor for her birthday?"
Then she untied a ribbon from a darling painted box and opened it to reveal this.
And I was all: Ooooh! Can I keep it for two days before you have to give it to her?
And she was all: Mum. No.
So I was all: How about overnight? Can I keep it overnight?
She shook her head.
Then I said: What if I set it on my leg for five minutes and take a picture?
But she only let me keep it five seconds.
I'm hearing a Welsh accent and smelling something good to eat.
Every time I see these two it tugs at my heart because unlike Yoshi, I believe Seabiscuit would love a playdate with the captain.
Finally, this morning I went for a run and it was quite lonely except for this magnificent fellow, who decided to whoosh in and keep me company for awhile.
Another five minute friend, I suppose.
I enjoyed every moment.
